Dogs on the Bed

Bluemle, Elizabeth. 2008. Dogs on the Bed. Illustrated by Anne Wilsdorf. Candlewick Press.

What's a family to do when the dogs won't take no for an answer? This family has too many dogs. And they all want on the bed. Though this mom has a few impatient moments, love eventually triumphs in this rhyming adventure.

There are dogs on the bed
Like logs on the bed
Bed hogs on the bed --
These dogs, these dogs!

Sideways on the bed
Dog maze on the bed
Paws grazing our heads--
These dogs, these dogs.
A playful book with a cute premise. An ultimately loving portrayal of the bond between families and their dogs.
